Down to the Bottom of the Sea – ghostofgatsby

Ross splutters as another wave crashes down upon him, soaking him further in icy water. He clings onto a piece of the starboard bow, cutting his palms on the barnacles. The waves crash into him, and he’s slipping no matter how hard he tries to stay afloat.
From the neck down his body is slowly freezing, numbness soaking through him like the cloak of death. His hair is plastered to his head and his clothes are stuck to his back. The water is a terrible, drenching cold, and there’s a feeling of doom within him.
Ross is going down with this ship, and nothing is going to save him from it.

the multitudinous seas incarnadine – ghostofgatsby

Ross opens his mouth to say something, but the floor in front of him shakes with a loud bang and a blinding blaze of holy light flashes from the doorway. When Ross can see again, he looks up slowly.
Leather dress shoes have burned the “Off” part of the welcome mat by the door, so it only reads “Fuck” instead. Swirling gold and silver magic intertwines up a khaki-colored trench coat. A grizzled beard and dark, burning eyes scan the living room as golden sigils float in the air around his face, protecting him from the remaining threshold magic fighting back.
“Knock knock,” teases Angor, with a smile completely devoid of kindness or mercy. A badge for Magical Law & Safety is clipped to his lapel.
Smith stares over the back of the couch, sucking in a ragged breath through his teeth. “Angor…”

the life of a drowning boy- playlist

A sequel playlist to a playlist for an original short story I wrote for creative writing, darkness within. It was about two brothers (one of which murders his girlfriends in a lake in their small Florida town); their relationship with their parents, and societal expectations.

But what if the boy who left and the boy who was left behind grew up?

Tracklist (and my vague-ish plot ideas) below the read-more. Note cw tags for both.
Dunno if the plot matches the mood of the music as well as the last one, but oh well.

Check out the Spotify playlist here.

darkness within- playlist

A playlist for an original short story I wrote for creative writing. It was about two brothers (one of which murders his girlfriends in a lake in their small Florida town); their relationship with their parents, and societal expectations. So, lots of blues-y, drowning songs.

upon this bank and shoal of time – ghostofgatsby

They laugh as they dart between the lamplight and the shadows and dance around lampposts. Once at the river, they kick off their shoes. The moonlight shines across the surface of the water.
Smith walks backwards into the river. “Come on, to shake the summer heat from our skin.” He beckons.
“It isn’t as warm out as it was at high noon. Won’t it be too cold?” she questions.
“We can warm up.” He smirks and reaches out for her. “Come in with me.
